Do you like the way Disney is taking classic fairy tales and morphing them into something cooler? I do. How’d you like The Princess and the Frog, the way they added jazz and flair to the whole story?

I remember reading this series when I was in elementary school. Apparently, it’s based on the first three books of the series: The Capture, The Journey, and The Rescue, all written by Kathryn Lasky (who, interestingly enough, was an executive producer of this movie). So when it came out in DVD, I decided to watch it. Read the rest of this entry »
